Five Nfl Changes We'd Like To See

View CoverRead All Articles

More dancing
Can ban on end zone celebrations. Face it: Bob 'n' Weave hurts no one.

More OT thrills
Institute college overtime rule. Teams, not a coin toss, should decide winner.

More cough-ups
Let the ground cause a fumble! No play should be blown dead while ball goes bounding away from its carrier.

More slack
Give defender touchback when his momentum carries him into the end zone after he recovers a fumble. Lack of such a rule cost Oakland a victory against Seattle in December.

Less confusion
Dump "pass was uncatchable" judgment calls on would-be interference plays. Don't we ask enough of refs without forcing them into this chicken-or-egg paradox?
